Sarri 'very confident' Willian set for Chelsea stay

Chelsea transfer news Willian

Reports even suggested Chelsea were open to selling him given he turns 30 next week, his late return from a post-World Cup holiday doing little to ease the tension.

His agent Christophe Henrotay had revealed that he had told Chelsea that Courtois wanted to go to Real Madrid.

Chelsea had been willing to cash in on Courtois on the proviso they could sign a replacement but, after seeing Alisson Becker join Liverpool, have so far been unable to secure a new No1. "I want only players with very high level of motivation", said Sarri, who has replaced Antonio Conte in charge.

"I'm very happy with David, for his attitude".

Ghezzal will link up with his new team-mates this week ahead of the Premier League season opener at Manchester United on Friday night.

Manchester City's pursuit of Jorginho faltered because Chelsea had a more pressing need for the Italy midfielder. "It's very important for us to keep the top players". "Maybe at the moment it is not true, but they have to start to think that they can play against everybody, in every stadium, in every team". I will see them on Saturday for the first time so I don't know the situation in this moment.

During his time in Russian Federation at the World Cup, Hazard has said things such as: "After 6 wonderful years at Chelsea it might be time to discover something different". There is not a Willian problem.

"I want to hear from Courtois tomorrow". "I don't know in the future". We talked only about 'Can I arrive on Monday instead of Sunday?' It depends on the club.

Bournemouth will be hoping to wrap up the signing of Colombian defensive midfielder Jefferson Lerma for a club-record fee.
